Local Specials for Valentine’s Day/Weekend

Posted by on Feb 14, 2014 in Blogs | 0 comments

heart valentines love woman smile manValentine’s Day, February 14th, is a joyous holiday celebrated by spending time with loved ones, sending and receiving hand-written letters, exchanging flowers, and consuming inordinate amounts of chocolaty goodness in the form of truffles and pastries.

Valentine’s Day was sanctioned as a church holiday by Pope Gelasius around 498 A.D.  The specific origin of this lovely holiday remains unclear because the Catholic Church recognizes and celebrates three different saints, all named Valentine or Valentinus.  In one interpretation, St. Valentine fell in love with the daughter of his jailor.  Before he died, Valentine wrote her a letter and signed it as “From your Valentine” — a phrase that we see today in many letters and cards.

 

Whether you are single, married, in a relationship, or all things in between, here are some great ways to celebrate the joy of love locally with friends or family.
